Thank you! Indeed, I tried to do something different and close to the original Chambers' drawing.

Oh man I like you take on him. :D And the lack of colors too. The black and white really defines him well.

I have another, a colour drawing of the King -- will post it by the end of the week.
And I'm glad you dig it. Some people were dismayed there no YELLOW on this picture :)

I wouldn't recommend it all, really. Unless you're a completist ;)

I'll give a try, mainly cuz I want to know the conection between the crimson king from the Dark Tower series and some tales from Lovecraft... just a crazy idea witout fundaments that I have.

You'll be amazed how elusive the whole thing is, as Chambers gives only hints of everything, we don't meet the King or go roaming the streets of Carcosa. Well, You'll see :)
Also I suggest you read only these stories:
The Repairer of Reputations
The Mask
The Court of the Dragon
The Yellow Sign
All others have almost no connection to the myth about the King.
